What does this mean?

Dear Bradford,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be an ivory carving consisting of a ball with two relief depicting battle scenes in costumes of the 17th century. This piece was made in the second half of the 19th century in France or Germany.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 200 to 400 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
